    I just got back from a trip to Iceand where I believe to have encountered bed bugs during my stay. When I returned home I washed and dried all of my clothing on high heat and did not bring my luggage into the house, but today I found this bug on my bed. Is this a bed bug? I apologize that the photo isn't the best.

    Yes, a beetle that looks very much like a black carpet beetle.
